Steven Wright
Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of the daily performances by Indians prospects. This is a special winter ball version of ATF that recaps all the offseason action by Indians players in the Caribbean Leagues.  The positions listed below are where the player was playing in the game.
Here is the rundown of what Indians players in winter ball did yesterday.
Panama Winter League
  • Steven Wright (SP, Chiriqi Roneras): 4.0 IP, 7 H, 3 R/ER, 1 K, 2 BB, 0 HR. Wright’s first rough outing (and last) in Panama. Seeing how his team is in the championship series this was likely his last outing of the offseason. In 8 games prior to last night he had a 1.39 ERA and pitched 32.1 innings and gave up 20 hits, 12 walks and had 14 strikeouts.
Venezuelan Winter League
  • Eric Berger (RP, Bravos de Margarita): 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K. Berger is off to a very nice start to his winter ball campaign as he has now made three appearances and thrown 3.0 shutout innings allowing 1 hit, no walks, and has 4 strikeouts. Let’s hope the Stache can continue his early success the rest of the way.
  • Paolo Espino (SP, Tiburones de la Guaira): 5.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R/ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 0 HR. Espino got another crack in the starting rotation after a disastrous 0.1 inning 5-run outing a week ago. He pitched well allowing just 1 run in 5.0 strong innings, and it is easily his second best appearance this winter in 5 games pitched.
  • Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 0-for-4, K. Carerra’s up and down performance this fall continues as it looks like he is in the beginning stages of a funk as he is 0-for-10 in his last 3 games.
  • Asdrubal Cabrera (SS, Leones del Caracas): 0-for-4. What a bum. He follows up his 3-for-4 debut on Wednesday night by going 0-for-4 the next night. Just cut him already. (sarcasm)
  • Jesus Aguilar (1B, Leones del Caracas): 2-for-3. The Jesus Aguilar Show continues. He still has a ways to go before he is Major League ready, but there is not a position player who has improved and who has risen up the rankings in the organization like him this year.
